I am not afraid to admit, I am quite fond of Ben 10 and of Alien Force and Ultimate Alien. I like the animation, music, dialogue and stories and also how much the characters and voices have matured too. Secret of the Omnitrix is the epitome of everything I like about Ben 10 and its successors. Its plot is interesting and very well paced, I did worry that it would fall into the trap of being an extended episode but I needn't have done. The action scenes are compelling with some eye popping visual effects and the relationships between the characters are believable and don't take too long to develop.
The animation is also above decent, and I think improves slightly in its background quality. The characters are drawn in a unique way and the colours are bold and colourful. The music is very energetic and driven, the dialogue has a well-judged balance of being funny, thought-provoking and somewhat more reflective perhaps, the characters are all likable even the villains and Ben is growing in his maturity every time I see him and the voice acting is solid across the board.
Overall, surprisingly good and recommended. 8/10 Bethany Cox
